The posings of a poet.

{Superman Symbol}


Superman

(Credit: eekypooh)

THERE IS
            A THING
                        I CANNOT
                                    STAND

AND THAT’S
            A WOUNDED
                        SUPERMAN

NOT BECAUSE
            HE DOES
                        NOT
                                    DESERVE

TO LEAVE
            OFF
                FLYING
                        AND STRENGTH
                                    PRESERVE

AND NOT
            BECAUSE
I FEEL
            DISGUST

HOW COULD I
            WHEN
                        HE
                                    PUTS UP
                                       WITH US

AND NOT
            BECAUSE
            I FEAR
                        THE CHANGE

BUT MORE
            THAT NOW
                        HE’S
                                    WITHIN
                                                MY
                                                      RANGE


WHERE ONCE
            A
                        MAN OF STEEL
                              HELD ME

I CRADLE
            HIS HEAD
                        WHILE
                                    TEARS
                        FLOW             
                                    FREE

WHERE ONCE
            I SAW
            COLOSSAL
                        MIGHT

I SEE
            PAIN
AND
            KRYPTONITE

AND
            ALL OF THIS
               WOULD BE
                        ENOUGH

BUT THAT
            IT ALSO
                        CALLS
                                    MY BLUFF

NOW
            I CAN’T
                        BE
SECOND BEST
                        IN TOWN

I MUST
            RISE UP
                        SINCE HE
IS DOWN

AND THOUGH
            HE FIGHTS IT
                        AMAZINGLY

I’LL HAVE TO
            MAKE HIM
                        GIVE
                                    TO ME

THE MANTLE
            THE CAPE
                        THE POWER
                                    TO CARE

TO LIFT THEM
            ALL
                        HOW CAN I
                                    DARE

BUT
            I MUST
AND
            SO SHALL I

UPHOLD THE WORLD
            DEFEND
                        AND
                                    FLY
